so apparently out of keeping with the
t acts that it is needless to discuss it
with physicians who are in touch
with modern milk sanitation. In
der, however, that you may all form
an intelligent opinion the various
statements will be discussed in d
tail. The statement that health au
thorities are not agreed in regard to
pasteurisation Is absolutely untrue
The following statement from Park'i
latest edition of "Public Health and
Hygiene," page 3K0, shows that auth
orities are practically unanimous in
regard to pasteurization.
'When we consider our inability
to identify the chronic typhoid car
rier, the slight cases of diphtheria
and scarlet fever, and the impossibil
ity of eliminating in the near future
tuberculosis from our dairy herds,
we realize that something beyond in
spection is required to make safe the
general milk supply. Most of us
who have studied the question be
lieve that proper pasteurization un
der rigid inspection is the method
by which wholesome milk can be pro
vided." An inspection of a properly super
vised and conducted pasteurization
plant will demonstrate to your sat
isfaction that contamination after
pasteurization is next to impossible
The facts in regard to the Chicugo
epidemic according to official records
show that this epidemic was due to
a badly infected milk supply and im
perfect pasteurization. The official
record of the health department on
page 1011 states, "A check up on
the daily charts disclosed the fact
that pasteurization had been done
very Inefficiently on December 17, 19,
24 and 28, Methods were used
that are now prohibited."
The address of W. H. Donnelly,
M. D., a pediatrician of Brooklyn. N.
Y., simply represents the opinion of
small group of physicians who in
sist on disagreeing with the major
ity, There is no certified milk sold
in Portland, and the raw milk sold
here falls short of meeting the re

The era of pasteurization is just

it is an incomplete food."
Kdward V. McCoIlom states, "No

Low temperature pnsteurlzation

The need for safeguarding the milk

based simply on the question of
